I proudly present my game “A Joke That’s Worth $ 0.99” (or whatever it might cost, it’s a working title).
It is a balancing game of a tiny person with a bouncy bum that lives on the crank of the Playdate. The longer you can balance it, the more you get to know of a very long joke. If you can balance him for a long time, you will be rewarded with a punchline that is definitely worth $ 0.99 or whatever it might cost.
Here’s a video preview, I think it already explains everything:
This is genius! I like it, it’s super simple, but yet so well done
Love the details like the shadow.
Would be interested to know if this is using one of the 3D libraries?
ps: maybe it’s just me, but the thing you bounce is a bit phallic? (Sorry!)
Wow!! That’s great!
Can I share it?
Wow. The Isometric effect here work soo well!
my new favorite expression
Thank you, happy to hear that!
I don‘t use a 3D library. To be exact: I hand-painted 90 angles and wrote a program in P5 to interpolate between these images. So in the end, I have 360 single images, one for each degree. This is enough to make it feel quite smooth.
The phallic tiny person is not intended, but welcome. Maybe I should give him arms?
Just came here to say this is soooo cool!
That is completely incredible. What a fun combination of goofy controls and inventive storytelling. Love it!!
Thanks Arisa, glad that you like it!
Thank you, happy to hear that
this made me smile, i love it!! easily worth more than 99 cents
Love this! Everything about this -- the hand-drawn feel, the bouncing physics, the tiny animation details -- it's all so good.
Looks fun! And impossible on crankless legacy platforms
HOLY COW IT'S KAMIBOX!!!!! Maaaan i love your games soooo much! And the fact that you're making a game for the Playdate is even better
This kind game also kind of shows the potential of "WarioWare" like type of game and this is formidable <3
PS: love SEE SAW on iOS.
